as well. we will see, shep. >> shepard: republicans are aware george w. bush did it this too. >> he actually did it far more than president obama. who has only used this kind of recess appointment less than 30 times in 40 years. george w. bush used it 141 times over the course of two terms 8 years. that's why jay carney said that this is going to be overturned eventually whether it's by the supreme court. take a listen. >> we respectfully but strongly disagree with this decision. it counters 150 years of precedent. there are over 280 recess appointments made in -- during intrasession recess appointments by democratic and republican administrations alike. >> carney also noting this was just one court that was ruling on one case in washington state. a suit that had been brought against the nlrb. that's why tonight at the white house they are not sweating too much. they believe that they can win at the supreme court and they think in the end this is going to be pushed out, shep. ed henry out in the yard. thank you. penn state university could soon settle several civil claims in the chi
. george w. bush got 62 million votes in the 2004 election and conservatives said he had a mandate. barack obama got 62 million votes in the two -- 2012 election, and conservatives started a secessionist movement. but the obama campaign took it to them and made a difference in the end. they helped create a new electorate, a coalition of concerned and they turned it out on election day. our two political parties are separate and not equal. the percentage of republicans who are white has remained fairly steady since 2000 at about 87%. the percentage of democrats who are white in contrast has dropped from 64% in 2000 to 55% now. independents have gone from 79% to 67% white since 2000. the depth of republican dependence on white voters explains a lot about the recent election. not least about its outcome. republican efforts to suppress minority voters back fired big time. [applause] in florida alone, 266,000 more hispanics voted than in 2008. similarly in ohio, 209,000 more blacks voted than in 2008. overall, while romney received 59% of the white vote, all hot -- obama -- omaha? obama got 93%

[ ♪ theme music ♪ ] >> john: good evening, i'm john fugelsang. this is "viewpoint." thank you for spending your martin luther king jr. holiday with us. president obama marked his second inauguration at president with a speech that was less lofty and a lot of more lefty than his first time around. after taking the oath of office from chief justice john roberts mr. obama outlined a wish-list of progressive policies and programs for the next four years and called for collective action to put them in practice. >> obama: now more than ever we must do these things together as one nation and one people. we the people, understand that our country cannot succeed when a shrinking few do very well and a growing many barely make it. we believe that america's prosperity must rest upon the broad shoulders of a rising middle class. we must make the hard choices to reduce the cost of healthcare and the size of our deficit. but we reject the belief that america must choose between caring for the generation that bui
. and his predecessor george w. bush had a 61% polarization rate and the fox news poll shows him polarizing into the second term. >> well, you know what, kelly, it's not all his fault. >> kelly: good points. >> we've had more politicians in washington put politics before policy. having said that, reagan was a great leader, bill clinton was a great leader. reagan cut deals with tip o'neill. bill clinton cut deals with newt gingrich. you have to compromise. obama is a great or atore and motivational speakers and he's he not been a great leader, but takes republicans coming to the table as well. >> kelly: well, why is it, why does this kind of problem exist for the president who wanted to become the unifier in chief and yet, in many ways he's perceived as the divider in chief. well, i think, you have to look at how republicans have treated the president since he's been elected into office and now reelected. now, half of the republican party doesn't believe the president is the citizen of the country-- >> that's not true, that's not true. >> 49% of republicans-- >> and that's the poll, not eve

. >> and david gregory, about a two-mile drive. >> and you remember in the modern era, george w. bush -- the language plate is -- >> yeah, the license plate just for a second here is a story. it's a -- kind of a protest legal local license plate here in washington, d.c. taxation without representation. the president has opted to use them on all the limousines. >> and that always comes up for presidents. >> d.c. has a delegate, a nonvoting member of congress. >> george w. bush met president clinton and they got along famously. they were swapping stories and how bush raised the sector of the shadow returns every time clinton would try to campaign for al gore. so that was chummier. and they kept on a pretty good relationship. >> you don't have to look that far back. in 2008, you had george w. bush and president-elect obama riding over together. while i think the obamas were pleasantly surprised as how smooth the transition was, how the bush administration bent over backward toes make sure there was a smooth transition of power, obama had run against bush and the bush policies and to this
, republicans have not had a majority of votes. even though george w. bush served two terms, he did not get a majority in 2000 and barely got one in 2004? >> i'm not one to minimize the danger and challenge of the republican party. losing 25 senate seats this year -- president obama only got 51% of the vote. the economy is looking great. a lot of democratic incumbents looked people ribble. the senate cannot be gerrymandered. it looked like a clean a snapshot of the country. for republicans to win 8 waterboarded -- while democrats one -- republicans will 8 and democrats won 25, that is dangerous. we need to figure out what went wrong in 2012. i'm not for endless naval gazing. there are plenty of fights to be had. where can we cooperate with president obama? in some ways, you lose an election, and you think about it for a few months. and you get back right on the horse and try to start writing again and figure out what we believe and and what fights we want to have and what policies we want to -- want to propose. host: politico wrote about you -- what have you been doing? guest: it is interes
came up with this idea that george w. bush, bush 43 as he's known in this country, and tony blair knew there were no weapons of mass destruction in iraq but invaded anyway. your book says that's bunk. >> yes. the book really says that the intelligence agency simply got it wrong. the politicians, talking particularly about here in london, thought the weapons were there, and they thought it because the intelligence agencies told them they were. so i really focus on trying to understand why mi6 got it wrong over those iraqi weapons of mass destruction. and incidentally, a lot of that british intelligence was vital in the american case for war. but they simply were being told things by their agents in iraq which were not true, and the quality control, the checking on that information simply failed. people were saying this is here, that's here, and they believed it. the checking simply didn't work. and that played a key role in the case for the war. and especially in britain. i think it has done a lot of harm to the reputation of mi6 because the case was built on their work. jon i hate to k
sat down with the director of management under president bush george w. bush. i wanted to get his reactions. many republicans hoped daniels, a fiscal conservative would run for president in 2012. he turned that job down and made a seriously nerdy move. despite he is not an academic, ened up not president of the united states but president of purdue university. i talked with him. >> budgets are the wrong place to be focused but you have made a career, in part on what you have seen as being critically important, which is the budgeting process. talk to me about the importance of budgets. >> i'm a noncombatant. >> no. i'm interested in the importance of budgets. >> i don't have a party or partisan point of view. i'll say that. i would agree that it's a mistake to fix sate on budgets as though they were the end themselves. they are an expression of what's important to us. we devote the most money to the things we believe is most important. it's a fundmental decision. we have to be thinking in terms of priorities and they translate into the dollars and cents. >> you were wildly popular
assistant to president george w. bush and martin frost is a former texas congressman. thank you both for joining us. >> thank you, thank you. good to be here. >> the current senate makeup. let's take a look at the numbers. 55 democrats, 45 republicans currently. in 2014, 33 seats will be up for re-election. don't go the way of general elections. congressman frost what do you think is going to happen? >> well, first of all, this is a subject i know a fair amount about. i was chairman of the democratic congressional campaign committee in 1998, the last time you had the so-called six year itch when the president's party is supposed to lose seats in the sixth year of the president's term. we actually picked up five seats in the house and we broke even in the senate. but what is happening here is that the republican party actually had this same opportunity in 2010 and 2012 and they nominated candidates that were too far to the right and lost some races they shouldn't have lost that happened in missouri and in indiana and in this last election it happened in delaware and colorado and nevad
to have people in and out of house. george h.w. bush took a polaroid camera and have congressmen sit on the lincoln bedroom and take a picture of it knowing no congressman was going to throw away a picture taken by the president of the united states. does it lead immediately to post partisan hall hall awe, absolutely not. the politics is about giving as well as taking. what is practicable must control what is pure theory and the president charlie your question's exactly right, i do think this president continues to think and overly theoretical ways about how he speeds his time. >> rose: i want to come to the legacy of the question of of course and equality and declining standard of living. jon meacham in we make the case ronald ronald reagan was a great president what makes him a great president. >> i think what made ronald reagan a great president is his life experience as a union negotiator was put to work in foreign policy. and what do you do if you're a negotiator you ask for a hundred percent and several for 50. you say the union reserves the right to lie cheat and steal he cal
is more self-aware than i perhaps thought he was on this. he's been looking at george w. bush's early part of the second term. but the question is what are they going to do about this? they do have a lot of things on their plate with gun control. how much are they going to push this? senate democrats, as you've been saying all morning, are their biggest problem here. >> can you talk about that? because i heard john barrasso, a republican leader in the senate, talk about, gosh, a large number of senate democrats that are running in states where barack obama got below 45%. >> it's tough for them. >> democrats are running in republican territory two years from now in a lot of these senate races, right? >> no question. and a lot of these issues, obviously like on gun control and things are things that these senate democrats don't want to talk about at all. the re-election prospects -- i mean, it's too early to say who's going to be controlling the senate after 2014, but democrats will have an uphill climb. you look at senator kay hagen from north carolina. she has a tough re-election fight on
that george w. bush won his first term in? >> this is the party that believes they are cutting taxes on the wealthiest of americans and it will create jobs. >> right. so bobby jindal, you know, the rnc came out with its blueprint of what went wrong. i don't think they are going to answer those questions. but the problem is they are going to hurt now or later. it's better to hurt now but they have to change and can't just tinker. >> they have to change so much i don't think they will be able to do it. a friend of bill. i will be back with the day's parting shot, wrapping up the week here on "full-court press." >> this is the bill press show.

another recent president, george w. bush, for the most polarizing presidents the way they put it of all time. chris wallace joins me now, the anchor of "fox news sunday." good morning, chris. >> food morning, martha. martha: what is the meaning of that number do you think? >> well it shows there is not a lot of common ground for the president. this was his polling number last year for the campaign year. i don't think given his inaugural address which pushed a very assertive liberal agenda that it will be much different this year, perhaps even the next four years. there is not a lot of common ground with this president. either you like him or really don't like him. he is perceived as a liberal, and somebody who will push a liberal agenda. martha: yeah. i have the same thought in terms of bringing things together. we did hear a lot about hope and change. when president obama then senator, ran against george bush he talked so much about the divisiveness in washington and how things were going to change. you wonder, sort of, how dispointing that is for him, on a personal level. and we'll no
of staff for president george w. bush and the 41st president of the united states, texas a & m university, mr. andy card joins us. as chief of staff, you have to set an agenda for the president. what is the challenge with the second term as opposed to the first? >> first of all, today is a day of celebration. yesterday was as well. but today will be the real public day of celebration and i'll be celebrating it, too. president obama is my president, too. i look forward to him taking the oath of office. i want to hear that inaugural speech. but i can tell you, there is going to be a lot of heavy lifting that has to take place in order for the president to be success envelope a second term. that's when the blues start to set in, when you realize how tough the job is and it's not just about the issues that you can anticipate meeting. it's the ones that you don't anticipate that you have to meet. and so i hope he moves from being an i president. he was very much an i president during his first term. i, i, i, i, i. the second term had better be a we. i'm not talking about a campaign slogan. yes
that that money is being effectively used to address certain things. george w. bush, i give him significant credit for the that far -- because they have set a certain standard, that these are our values, these are our standards, if you are able to enforce and implement those standards, we will provide you that support. there are some very good success stories there. it is a difficult climate with which to go back home and tell people that it works and it is and our national interest and we have a moral commitment on some of the tragic things that are happening, for example nutrition and disease and so forth. but as we see what is happening now in africa, and the threats there any changes that are taking place, africa suddenly has become a place where we have more interest. chuck was deputy secretary -- i got my acronyms maxed -- mixed up. he spent a lot of time looking at africa from the standpoint of his position in europe, kind of foreshadowing what was to come. and pleading, i think, for engagement in dealing with what was happening there. now we are seeing some of the consequences of all of th
%. that ties the highest ever with george w. bush in the fourth year of his presidency it was also 76%. >> this is not a president who is uniting the country. frankly i think the last election shows he doesn't feel he needs to. he has got a hardened constituenciy. voting public in any case you watched his speech. on monday here is what i am doing if you don't like it, tough there. there was one passing line about reach. and even that wasn't. >> he said the word together a lot. together we move forward. together. certainly republicans after hearing it said that it felt like he had drawn a line in the sand for very progressive ideas most progressive they had heard in decades this has been the theme of the administration past year. can't get it through congress go by constitutional order. this constitutional thing is silly. we have agenda and we will enact it whether you like it or not. >> ronald reagan once said government is the problem. so is the current president doing the opposite in trying to expand government. lots of people talked about that after his inaugural address as well. w
